The Urban Libraries Council and the national consulting firm Metropolitan Groupwill convene a National Forum on measuring the impact of public library summer learning programs in advancing critical educational goals in local communities for school-aged youth. Over the course of 12 months, The National Forum on Effective Summer Learning Initiatives in Libraries will develop a broad conversation on the need to build the knowledge, training, and capacity of libraries to frame and measure the effectiveness of their summer learning programs for school-age youth in public libraries. The project will engage organizations invested in preventing summer learning loss, research experts, and public library leaders engaging this issue from across diverse communities.
